To clarify that yesterday’s comments were both accurate and yet to show that image quality is sufficient so long as the subject matter is up to the task, I present three examples that I consider worthwhile, taken with an “all shit” Fuji F30 , converted for infrared use.
With infrared, the “live view” of a point and shoot can be very helpful because focus is (usually) accurate in infrared, and the scene can reveal itself with aspects not visible to the naked eye.
To make one point very clear: it’s the human behind the camera that accounts for 99% of the result. But when camera shortcomings preclude certain subjects, the camera is the problem—just try shooting sports or kids with a point-and-shit digicam! In short, you’re screwed if you pound nails with a screwdriver!
